  • Lorenzo Malowane
  • Peter Rowe is nutrition info based on real science. A lot of it. Consider dropping Mercola. popular, but there’s a good deal of bad info there too. also link to Dr. T.Colin Campbell’s “china study” and his online certificate in plant based nutrition via Cornell. And consider Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s “prevent and reverse heart disease, as well as Dr. John McDougall’s extensive site on his work with nutrition. All these sites are based on a very large amount of solid science over a long period, not just one author’s well written, but maybe not so solid ideas (all too common. Mercola is one example)
